What is it about fairies that makes them so airy (other than the fact that "airy" is itself included in the word's own formation)?
They seem to be the result of one of the Dreams' main mechanism: condensation. They are mainly anthropomorphically shaped, but they have clear components of the animal/ insect kingdom (tails, wings, "paws") Furthermore, long stripes of fabric, long curled hair, slim and tall bodies also provide a sense of nature to the images as they look like jumbled roots or vines. As far as their body posture goes, fairies always strike to be dancing ballet (pay attention to their feet and arms). Ballet elevates dancers from the ground, making them look as if they are floating rather than dancing. Light and velvety movements, surround ballerinas taking them to another dimension of reality. This dimension is fantasy, and fantasy is where ballerinas are transformed into fairies. Fantasy is the fairies’ natural habitat.
All these elements, detach fairies from the ground making them lift upwards and giving them a sense or airiness. Dec 12
